my team just checks out where all our events are so we dont get lost the next day and we study but i was wondering if any of you did anything different
We do that too. We basically take over the hotel lobby and everyone is studying. We check out where our events are.cant wait until nationals!!!

Haha, there's a funny typo on the NSO website, on a page for event supervisors:

"You will have preferential seating in the Nicholas-Johnson Suites for this event and there will be coffee, soda, cookies and snakes while you enjoy what I believe you will find to be an entertaining show."

That's no typo (, that's a space station). Who doesn't love snakes? Yum. I mean... SNAKES! Why did it have to be snakes? :D
